|My little 'helper' Keiko, digging through my box of goodies|
The days here are getting more summer-like as the days go by. After a week of nothing but grey skies and rain, we are getting warm sunny days. Around here after hot summer days come the thunderstorms. They bring with them charcoal grey clouds. You can see the storm gathering, clouds blocking out the sun...thunder rolling and rumbling in the background..quiet at first then louder as the storm approaches. Sometimes the thunder and clouds are accompanied by big,fat raindrops; sometimes not.
I too have been gathering.. some of my favourite items...sorting through boxes of embellishments and ribbons, trims and chipboard...collecting fabrics of all sorts. Patterned and plain, faded and pale...a nice muted colour palette. Can't wait to dig in and start my art quilt project.
Pearls, book print. Buttons.. there will be buttons. Lots of lovely buttons. Tea stained envelopes, resin embellies.. gorgeous seam binding from 5dollar french market..(take a peek.. I adore this etsy store!With such great names of seam binding colours, like Cafe Creme, Mint tea and French Vanilla, how could you not?)
